19!!

7:08 am - Wednesday - November 6th - Ramona, CA - 45° F, 63% humidity, wind - CALM.....clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 80° F.

Now that the weather has cooled down significantly I decided to begin riding my mountain bike during the week in the morning before I go to work maybe two or three times a week.  The other times TLE and I will do a quick lap around RORVR between 6 and 7 am.  TLE and I were up a little after 6 am, and while she did her Newell based workout, I drove up to the trailer to retrieve my Intense 5.5 and proceeded to do 3 laps around the park.  I was back just before 7 am having raised my heart and respiration rates.

Work Tuesday began slowly, but finished with a flourish.  After taking care of the pool, and horseshoe pits I picked up my fence building tools, and the squirrel bait.  I rebaited a bunch of squirrel holes, many of which are now inactive, meaning the bait I put out last week is still there.  Once the bait was out I headed back to the fencing above site #67 to take apart 8 sections.  I had intended to do about 15 sections of fence on Tuesday, but ended up doing 19 sections by the time 4 pm rolled around.......

 First 8 sections taken apart, and posts placed in holes


 First 8 sections complete

19 sections completed....looking back toward site #67.....it's way, way down there!

......in all I replaced 19 split rails, and 7 posts in this stretch of fencing.  I had to redig about 12 of the post holes, and ran into a lot of large rocks, and cement.  The hardest part of the process, obviously, is digging the post holes.  The fun, rewarding part is putting the fence back together and seeing the finished product.

I haven't dug post holes in about 10 days, and coming back to it again really wore me out, but in a good way.  We were in bed before 10 pm looking forward to another early rise Wednesday morning.
